Pat Shingleton: "Beagles and Foreign Objects..."
George Seaman raised Beagle dogs for rabbit hunting in the woods of Pennsylvania. George implemented a dog pen design that included fenced enclosures that surrounded the pen. The actual doghouse was situated on another end of the structure and was elevated from the ground by a couple-of-feet. This design provided a dual area for the Beagles to “do their business.” The meshed pen allowed the droppings to fall to the ground below. Relating to this description, a heavy snow provided an opportunity for our traditional snowball battles that stretched between the Minnet and Sudano yards, criss-crossing George’s property. The rules of engagement stressed that no “foreign objects” could be injected into a snowball. This included stones and gravel. My brother Kevin conformed to the rules but creatively decided to insert another foreign object that met with limited consternation. The “do-do” from George’s beagles fell to the ground and froze. Kevin gathered a few and inserted them into the snowball. His direct hit on Johnnie Cornelius’s noggin,’ during the snowball battle, met with the delight of many. Johnnie wasn’t a favorite in the neighborhood.
